Im considering getting a pair of firemouth cichlids because.... well.... because im a glutton for SA cichlids, I guess. For some reason EVERY lfs in a 20 mile radius has a plethora of baby firemouths :)
anyway, I could probably grow them out in my 30, but when they get a little bigger could they go in my 110 without any major issues?
right now my 110 has..
3 4-5.5" green severums (all very peaceful, except to each other)
2 3.5-4" blue gourami (playful, never bother anyone)
2 2" PB dwarf gourami (they were getting nasty agressive with each other and everyone else in my 30, so they had to go in here :()
10 tiger barbs
1 6" or so pleco
1 rainbow shark (who doesnt bother anyone)
would they have any agression issues in there?
As with all Cics, its the individual fish, sure with what you have you may be asking for trouble. Sevs placid ??? erm they soon change there spots when needed. :D
frm my exsperince with theses i would not put these in your tank with the severums, i done this once and the firemouths harrased them none stop, so in the end i had to give them back to the lfs
It's never a good idea to mix cichlids with community tropicals. JMO.
last week I gave away 1 PB dwarf and euthanized the other one. his tail fin was completely destroyed, and he could no longer swim :(
in the not too distant future im adding a few yoyo loaches.
If I relocated my other 2 full size blue gouramis, so as to help prevent problems, what other colorful SA cichlids (firemouth or otherwise) could I add with the tigerbarbs, rainbow shark, severums and pleco?
